The Bluetooth Special Interest Group has just announced that it has finalized the final specs for Bluetooth LE, a next-gen version of the Bluetooth audio spec that promises far-reaching performance improvements for future headphones and headphones like Apple’s next release. AirPods Pro 2.

What’s different between the new Bluetooth LE specification and the older version? A major update is the new LC3 codec, which is designed to enable better sounding audio at lower data rates. According to the Bluetooth SIG website, the LC3 “will bring tremendous flexibility to developers, allowing them to make better design tradeoffs between key product attributes such as audio quality and power consumption.”
